DO NOT pay extra for the GOTY edition. It was only a limited time offer
22 February 2010
Summary: GOTY Edition review Apparently Sony thinks that GOTY edition just means including a code inside the case thats only good for a limited amount of time to redeem for the extra content. Problem is, they put no indication on the outside of the box saying its a limited time offer. Once you open the case you will find out the only way to get the extra content is to redeem a code and that theres an expiration date on the GOTY content, and if you buy it anytime after Oct 2012,...
Summary: Don't get this!! The game of the year edition is a waste of your money. The codes that allow you to download the DLC are all expired. I got 2 different copies sent to me from amazon and both had the same expiration date which is 10/12/2010. I called sony and asked them about it and it turns out that the whole GOTY promotion is expired. So there are no more valid codes for this. Just get the regular version of this game and save yourself a headache and some money.
Summary: Uncharted 2 is not a mere game. It is an exhilarating experience like no other. It's something not even actions movies in 2009 couldn't give me. Having played through both beta's of the game, I had to buy the game day 0. The game's story is loosely based on the pursuit of treasure somewhere in Tibet by some bad guys and of course, our very own hero Nathan Drake is to stop them.
It's games like this that make me glad I have a PS3

Summary: I've only had a PS3 for a few months and to be honest, I wasn't initially that interested in the Uncharted games. But a friend of mine told me that they were the first games I should be playing, saying they were like Tomb Raider with a Gears of War cover system and with voice acting that made it seem as if you were watching a movie. Well, he was right.
The Bonus content advertised IS now useable. Originally the DLC codes did not work.

Summary: UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves Game of the Year Edition. The DLC content codes shipped with the game expired 9/5/2012. The only reason I purchased this particular version was to get the DLC. This is one of my first PS3 purchases for the first PS3 bought for the kids. Very disappointed in my VIP Group Corporation purchase. Really wish I had seen the customer review who already had this issue prior to ordering the game. Buyer beware!
Summary: (UPDATE: This review was put up right when the game came out in October of last year to notify current owners who had an interest in the new edition like myself. Item is still a Great Package for newcomers, except that now it comes in a red case for being part of the Greatest Hits Collection now. Red cases are ugly in my opinion. Game can be described as a hight quality cinematic action title at its best.
Summary: First, before you read this review go buy a copy of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves NOW! This is the most spectacular, mind blowing, jaw-dropping game I've ever played and I've been playing them since the days of Atari. I'm about three-quarters of the way through the game and I'm still seeing amazing gameplay aspects that makes my jaw drop and ask how in the world did they do that. I really don't know how they got the graphics to look this awesome but they did.
Summary: The single player story mode is superb. It combines a lot of different aspects ranging from an all out shooter to platforming and even some stealth. The story is well written and the cutscenes are superbly done. The graphics are top notch, the best of any game and any system so far. The multiplayer is also very fun. It comes in two different modes: standard multiplayer and co-op.
